Hi everyone, I have never had an issue with my pets about diet, but it seems that Harley is growing really quick, and not gained the weight to catch up with his bone structure.
Right now he is on natural Balance, excellent food, and veggies.
Is there anything natural I can give him to help him gain some weight. I upped the amount of food. He is quite active now..Going to the dog park every day.
We have checked for parasites, no such thing, so it is just on diet....
Anyone have any ideas for me ???

Try supplementing with this recipe. It's hollistic and I know many Bouvier owners who use it for that awkward gangly stage. http://www.holisticdog.org/Nutrition/Satinballs/satinballs.html

Nope, it's used as either a raw diet or as a dietary supplement for weight gain. No cooking. Just make sure to get a decent cut of ground beef.
